are getting jobs. today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> you heard the president. it's no day to talk down the economy to score political points. but shadowing the president in virginia, mitt romney waited nine minutes deep into his scintillating stump speech before even mentioning the big news of the day, delivering it like a speech at a funeral. >> there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month, and the unemployment rate, as you know, to this year has come down very, very slowly. of course, even those that have jobs are having tough times. >> okay. but give mr. romney credit because he actually admits the unemployment rate did come down. unlike prominent conservative jack welch who tweeted this morning, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. okay. tuesday he was a ruthless race baiter. yesterday he was a feckless delivery boy. today he's don corleone, and there's more where that
president obama moving in coordination with this, the question of is president obama handling the economy still not great but better. anything like that, helps the incumbent. remember, president obama's not going to be able to make the case that he fixed everything in four years. he's not trying to do that. what he has to say is i've made progress and can make more. in order to make that argument you have to be able to show people you've made progress or at least have people believe you've made progress, movement in the right direction numbers suggest that he's making that case. >> and we also have our new telemundo/nbc news poll breaking within this hour and that shows a 50-point lead among hispanic voters. 71/21 likely voters. that is a huge lead. the question is, of course, whether there is enthusiasm among hispanic voters and whether they're going to come out and vote. >> right. and even bigger gap than 69/31 what president obama beat john mccain among latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the
many pennsylvania romney hammered away at the president over the economy. >> i have to tell you that i don't know how a single person who goes to this institution could consider voting for the incumbent for president. i say that for this reason. if they want to go in the military, why, he is planning on cutting our military by about $1 trillion over the next decade. if they want to go on to either get a job directly or go on to a four-year college and come out with a gee, you know that 50% of kids coming out of college today can't find a job or a college level job. on both fronts, this president's policies have not worked for the young people of america. >> their first debate happens on wednesday. the romney team is downplaying expectations. romney advisor beth myers distributes this memo explaining why the president is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president wil usehis ample rhetoricts attack romney. obama w
left behind a wife and two daughters. >>> need a sign that the economy is picking up? belly up to the bar. beer sales are up for the first time since 2008. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. is this a bellwether? >> it is, just like lipstick. lipstick sales went up during the recession. they couldn't spend big on other things. beer is a great indicator. it looks like young men seem to be pushing up beer sales. brewers have said that beer sales have struggled over the past few years because young, blue-collared guys were hit hard by the the recession. now there's a recovery. unemployment rate is falling for men in their 20s. more jobs means more money to spend. wall street journal says beer sales are actually up 2% this year, following three years of decline. it really say fun way of looking at the economy, of how beer is affected by the way the economy is doing. overall -- you're laughing. overall it's typically considered recession proof. it's cheap. but for $8 or $9, you can get a nice six pack at home without breaking the bank. and president obama also has a hom
trying to dig the economy out of a massive hole. we were facing this economic collapse and he came into office and he has a long way to go. he needs four more years to make the difference that he's -- that we're starting to make now. and that we just need to believe that his policies do make a difference. he can now point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether they have a job, whether they know somebody unemployed and this is very abstract. so people are still hurting. but in terms of the political gamesmanship, 8% is an important marker because when the president passed the stimulus, one of his economists projected, it wasn't a promise, but a projection that 8% woul
of the economy, and where the jobs are now? >> it says, quite frankly, suzanne, that you're seeing steady hiring. not robust hiring, but steady hiring, and when you look at the unemployment rate dropping to 7.8% we know that there are people who are getting part-time jobs. there are people who are starting their own companies or starting to work for themselves from home. that's what is moving those numbers. you see that the private sector added 104,000 jobs, and the government sect or added 10,000. we saw health care jobs created. more than 44,000 there. this has been a trend for a couple of years. about 16,000 jobs lost over there in the manufacturing sector, which is, of course, very, very important to some of these battleground states, suzanne. >> christy, some of the attacks from conservatives, such as jack welch, saying they don't believe the numbers. they believe the books are cooked essentially. explain the process of how we reach these numbers today? >> there's spin, and then there are conspiracy theories, and the spin, which is valid, if spin can be valid, is that, you know, look, you s
enough in this economy to seek or get jobs that's really significant. >> reporter: the nation added 114,000 jobs in september, modest number about wt economists were expecting. the government reported upward revision for july and august. 86,000 jobs added over those two months. after president obama's weak debate performance wednesday, democrats are hoping this positive economic news can be a potential boost. >> the president: today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to sre a few political points. it is a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> reporter: mitt romney responded to the jobs report, this is not what a real recovery looks like. former ceo of ge jack welsh ignited a twitter storm this morning when he accused the obama administration of manipulating the numbers for political gain. >> there are always charges of manipulation on either side that's conspiracy thinking. >> reporter: the bureau who put out the jobs report are infrom the political process some republicans say welsh was way of base. karen traver, abc news, washi
double-digit percentages. then, the splits. the market versus the economy. the u.s. falling into recession pits again. our investors and for a stock surprise? mike holland thinks so. he is the chairman of holland and company. he is spending the last hour with us. you think there is a stock surprise that is a good one coming up? >> yes. i think if you had to characterize my years doing what i am doing, it is as a survivor. you have to be prepared for surprises in both directions. whenever we talk about you and i, that things can happen, we just heard three people talking about that. the things can happen, as well. ted weisberg is so smart. so good to listen to. his comments about what is going on, i think, are always -- liz: i love teddy. he has been well funneled and it is kind of obvious, it is the government trade, the central bank trade. >> i was shocked to not hear him say that. bernanke said a few years ago we have a problem. it would not be solved by the people in congress or in the white house. he actually said, this is not a deep secret, he can get the stock market a
to the economy, firing back with new numbers just today, growth in this country slower than we thought. >> look at the numbers that just came out and the growth of our economy. 1.3% versus russia at 4%? china at 7% to 8%? we're at 1.3%. this is unacceptable. >> reporter: and both candidates, out with new ads, looking straight to camera, a direct appeal. romney in a plaid shirt, no tie, looking to show a compassionate side. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: and the president, that table behind him, with what he'd say if invited to yours. >> when i took office, we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month, and were mired in iraq. today, i believe that as a nation, we are moving forward again. >> reporter: and with that renewed push for romney to try to convince voters of his empathy, an image from the campaign of a young romney, a missionary overseas, missing his girlfriend. his heart then as romney works to show heart now. >> my heart aches for the people i've seen. i was, yesterday
. there is no way for us to get our economy going until we have addressed the cost of health care. when i talk to small businesses and large corporations, after peril, their biggest item is the cost of benefits -- after payroll, their biggest item is the cost of benefits. that has to be priority number one camp that is why i disagreed with the president's approach. he should have made economic case for why we need to get a handle of health care costs. >> you have talked about wasteful spending in washington. you have issued statements about that night could be mentioned loopholes. those are difficult things to define for some people. give me one example of wasteful spending and a loophole. >> wasteful spending is the 30 cents on every health care dollar that goes to the health insurance industry that has nothing to do with patient care. that is wasteful spending. wasteful spending is the fact that the federal government is prohibited from negotiating on pharmaceutical pricing. the bush drug benefit forces to negotiate for the best price. that is and $80 billion giveaway. >> what is a loophole?
nation is more than $16 trillion in the red. that is a massive bubble that threatens our entire economy. how do the candidates handle this tomorrow night? let's ask chris stirewalt our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live, and stewart varney is the host of varney & company on the fox business network. thank you so much for being here. chris i want to start with you. what can either candidate say to grab, you know, america by the lapel and make them understand what each one of them wants to do to change our financial dire straits? >> it's a heck after lot easier for mitt romney on this one since he is the outsider and hasn't been in office and wasn't part of make thag debt and president obama has over seen in fact the unprecedented increase in size of the federal debt, and as a matter of fact in talking to senior people from romney land that is exactly what mitt romney means to do when he gets on that debate stage in denver, is go off the president not just on what romney says are ineffectual policies like the president's healthcare law and stimulus
on wednesday night. it's all on domestic issues, the first half, jobs and the economy, the second half, health ka'aihue and other domestic issues. david? >> david kerley in washington tonight, david, thanks very much. >>> i want to bring in abc news political analyst matt dowd who advised both republican and democratic campaigns age that is always great to have you with us. you have three things for everyone to watch for. one of the things you point out body language could have a bigger impact on words. we remember al gore and george bush having a field day with those. >> i've had a record of that in texas. >> as if the sighing weren't bad enough gore's behavior got worse. [ laughter ] >> in that same year we remember the moment when al gore got up, walked over towards governor bush and this is his reaction. >> flying to get things done. >> and i believe i can. [ laughter ] >> famous moment, years prior there was h.w. bush checking his watch. famous moments. are these debate prep teams saying this is what you don't do. >> at this point in time they're emphasizing style as opposed to substance
making $50,000. >> it's the right way to encourage economic growth. you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> one thing he did not do in his first four years, just to raise taxes. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism. >> you were lucky enough to attend cran brook. >> you wear crummy shoes. people notice. >> we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare. i got everybody in my state insured. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care. >> teach a man how to fish. >> my heart aches for the people i have seen. >> don't simply feed fish. >> every now and then i'm known to make a mistake. >> we throw our own penalty flag at mr. romney and mr. ryan. >> romney, ryan, romney, ryan. >> so that people don't get tired of her. >> when you go after my man -- >> stop it, this is hard. you want to try, it get in the ring. >> was i a little strong? >> never apologize for america. >> people will call my awful things every day. there are going to be bumps in the road. >> what's with the wily coyote nuclear bomb? >> 90 minute
. the debate is on domestic policy. 90 minutes is supposed to be devoted to the economy specifically with governing and health care. but we'll see if the general nature of those areas allows libya to come up, which we know the romney folks want to do. debates are as much about style as substance and this is a reality show where obama and romney will meet in the first time in nearly five years before their biggest audience of the campaign. the first 2008 presidential debate between the president and john mccain got seven times the audience of the highest rated 2012 republican primary debate. think about that. seven times. past debates show romney and obama have to worry about cut away shots that are less than flattering. in the past both candidates have come across as irritable, patronizing or disengaged. this was chris christie's advice to the candidates yesterday. >> what you do is go out and be yourself. and people either like it or don't. if they don't, they are going to vote for somebody else. not a tragedy. no one dies. >> finally speaking of debates, there was a barn burner las
on the economy, we'll get some meat on the bone here. but we forgot that this is politics. there are less than five weeks to go before the election, and there are certain things, mitt romney's tax plan, barack obama on social security, barack obama on simpson bowls and debt reduction, they don't want to put meat on the bone. people criticized the moderator. i'm not sure if the moderator pushed more for specifics if they decided i'm not going down this road, and they both clearly decided that on social security for obama, on tack plx plan for romney. i don't know how much cajoling will get them. barack obama being better today than he was last night, here's the problem. let's say there were 5,000 people at that rally. 50 plus million people we expect to have watched the debate last night. that's the issue. you need to be at your best when the audience is massive. you know, being good at a rally with your supporters is a lot easier than being good at a big, giant event where you're being directly confronted by the guy who wants your job. >> chris cillizza, ruth marcus and john harris, thank you
could have. >> reporter: his dream opened just as the economy crashed. office space went unfilled. disney pulled out. >> a new world class resort casino. >> reporter: but now peterson has a plan to fix it. >> this is a resort. this isn't just a casino. along with the upscale restaurants, along with the upscale retail is another ammenity called a casino. >> reporter: peterson's casino dreams have faced a furious onslaught. >> we've heard those empty claims before. >> good paying jobs. >> reporter: caesar's and mgm have responded with a barrage of ads of their own. 1 poll suggests maryland voters are about evenly split on this question despite the millions of dollars that have been spent on both sides. bruce leshan, 9 news now. >> revenue estimates for maryland's slot par mores were way overblown, but patterson -- parlors were way overblown, but peterson insists this will be different, a las vegas resort style hotel. >>> fairfax county police want you to look closely at this next picture which dubs the office creeper. the suspect poses as a maintenance guy in order to steal walle
moderator jim lehrer. >> let's start with the economy, segment one, and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you go about creating new jobs. you have two minutes each of you to start print a coin toss determines, mr. president, you go first. >> four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis in the great depression. millions of jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we've begun to fight our way back over the last 30 months, we've seen 5 million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is where we've been, but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes, skewed toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations, that we would be better off. i've got a different view. i think we've got to invest in educati
. specifically he made the case then right or wrong that he was a better steward of the economy than john mccain in troubled times. romney's got to make that case in 2012. >> little different when you're running against an incumbent. right? there's not a direct parallel there. >> look at the transcript. he was running against president bush. that these set of economic policies are wrong and i have a compelling vision. whether he can do that is another story. >> your colleague e.j. deion wrote journalists are in search of defining moments and game changers. by this standard, romney needs to game changer. obama can live quite happily without one. so do you think that mitt romney needs to have a big moment or if he is perceived to have won will at least give republicans some momentum. is that really the most reasonable thing to hope for? >> well, certainly it will. if the race were sort of fixed in time right now, everybody assumes that obama would win. in many ways that's happening because of early voting all right. so romney needs to change the trajectory in some way. now, that washington pos
, dealing with the economy. they would go back to the talking points in the attacks. it was clear they were trying to score points. fireworks. a "game change"er if you will. i want you to see here's mitt romney in a scenario that played out in the debates, the primaries with rick perry in las vegas. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. >> you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here. in get 60 seconds and then you get 30 donds respond. anderson -- >> you say -- you knew. >> would you please wait? are you just going keep talking? let me finish what i have to say. >> all right. there's always that opportunity really when somebody gets in the other's skin and you lose control of the debate and he yearly lost control over his cool, calm demeanor. what are some of the challenges he's going to be up against when he's faced off with obama. >> i think you're absolutely right. i mean that's a situation where it gets out of control and people start not looking very presidential. and you certainly don't want that on either side. so, my guess is you're going to see president obama playing defense
and slap it on your lapel. turns out it is not only patriotic to salute the military but the economy, too. according to president obama, there is such a thing as economic patriotism. >> during campaign season you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time for a new economic patriotism. an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> it's become sort of a democratic man tra. in 2008, it was said the richer needs to pay more. >> no wone has more patriotism than even money needs a passport. summers on the beaches of the cayman islands and winters on the slopes of the swiss alps. >> ouch. the romney campaign is firing back as in, hey, a humongous deficit is not patriotic. >> this is a land where economic freedom has allowed people to pursue their dreams and in doing so and achieving success, they lift us as a nation, they give us jobs, i will not apologize for success here and i will never apologize for america abroad. >> how's that for economic patriotism, whatever that is? so the talk back questi
banks. this from the third quarter of 2010 shows a much different economy. back to you. melissa: interesting. thank you so much for the six a headline that generated all kinds of surprises. apple apologizing for it map app. the ceo tim cook says the company is doing everything it can to make maps better. you can use alternatives by downloading maps. what? melissa: that is crazy. that is like we have a problem with our signal, please go over to our competitor. lori: silence, i think says more. dennis: remember when they had the intended debacle. not admitting anything was wrong with it and people were getting more and more frustrated. lori: that is a good point. i think charlie gasparino is standing by with his latest report. inc. of america, i guess this is more interesting to charlie, at least. the bank with a 3.5 million in charges. bank of america says this is not an admission of guilt. the settlement was reached to eliminate the uncertainties. melissa: the latest news from bank of america that pain is still being felt from the collapse of 2008. charlie gasparino is first to
assistant to george w. bush. santita let me start with you. americans are very unhappy with the economy, the president says he's unhappy too. is his challenge to explain how the next four years would be any different? and if you look at his convention speech i'm not sure there is any difference. >> you know i think that his great challenge is the same challenge that governor romney faces tomorrow night, which is to be relaysable an rerelatable and likable. likability really does matter. gregg: you don't think people really want specifics, tell me mr. president how the next four years is any different. >> you know, gregg you have to balance style with substance. the fact is they'll have to run against their narrative in a time of great economic want. you've got a very, very wealthy man who is running. i'm not saying he can't relate to the poor but governor romney is going to have to do that. president obama is someone who is prove sore kwral and known for his excellence. gregg: insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. the president has been describ
is down again. government analysts blame it on a very weak economy. a new report just out this morning shows that the number of births fell 1% last year. the fourth annual decline in a row. fewer than 4 million babies were born last year. the lowest since 1998. analysts say the trend is reversing because the economy is improving. on that note, i think i am ready for another. >> really? talking about this. you got two. are you ready? >> some of my friend have had babies. you see a little baby. >> and they smell good. >> they grow up they're 3 and 5 and drive mommy and daddy crazy. they're good. >> a look at your wednesday weather, everybody. thick morning fog in boston, new york, d.c. thunderstorms in the carolinas southward. gusty wind from seattle to minneapolis. up to a foot of snow in montana mountai mountains. >> 80s in colorado springs. albuquerque, across the south. mostly 70s in the north east as well as the midwest. >>> here is a truly great story all about a guy named adam greenberg. on a one game contract with the florida mlins last night for their game against the mets. >> h
some polls suggest doesn't make any sense. the economy is on the verge of another recession according to a lot of nonpartisan think tanks. people are out of work and the unemployment rate is skyrocketing. the idea the democrats turn out with the same numbers and the same level of enthusiasm as they did in 2008 has raised, rightfully so, the number of democrats sampled in the polls. >> perry, what are hearing about the internal polls? >> the romney campaign keeps putting out memos say the race is closer than the polls show. if it showed they were winning by a lot, they would say that. the romney campaign privately does not they think the polls awrong. they say the poll show obama leading by more than think he is. it's not they're saying the polls are wrong. when every national poll -- i don't think we can say -- when fox news' poll shows obama ahead in a bunch of swing states recently, i don't think we can say the polls are wrong and biased because fox news conservative leading. they show what the polls are showing as well. the president has a strong lead. pollsters have a strong incen
questions for romney. >> i think romney will turn the economy around but it's the other issues that we don't know about. >> reporter: like what? >> like the medicare, health care issues. >> reporter: in haymarket, virginia, life-long republican dan stapleton echoes fears about the romney/ryan ticket. >> i think they want to change ot so dramatically that we won't recognize it quite as medicare once they're done. >> reporter: by balancing the ticket with ryan, an advocate of major changes to entitlement programs, romney has prompted haestions on what he would do about medicare. ro now mitt romney's attacking the president on medicare? >> reporter: and he's also opened the door to an avalanche of democratic attack ads. >> analysts say it could raise seniors' costs up to $6,400 a year. >> reporter: today a spokesperson for the romney campaign called these latest medicare issues "er" because his plan was not adequately explained in the questions. sut, scott, the responses are relevant to romney's hopes. >> pelley: dean, thanks very much. both candidates have had their plans distorted in a torr
be very interesting. >> jobs, economy, health care, et cetera. >> they will have a suitcase full of zingers preparred to just hurl back and forth at each other. >> i thought that it was interesting, the expectations, people expect, president obama, by 2-1 to win the election. not that they're endorsing. if you look at just a year ago, by an 18-point margin, thought the president would lose. just in a matter of one year. >> expect him to win the debate convincingly as well. see what happens. when it comes to the race. it's much closer. when it comes to the race. shows the mitt romney at 49 losing to obama with 47. much closer in that regard. >> so the first one wednesday. then we have two more coming up. biggest one no doubt. >> 36 days to go. >> 36 days to go. my goodness. >> not that we are counting. >>> as the the war in afghanistan winds down, the u.s. military reached a grim new milestone. 2,000 service members have now died in the war. the latest casualty, it was over the weekend when a soldier died in a fire fight with afghan troops. an american civilian contractor was also
a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran follows israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's drawing attention at the united nations to the nuclear worries. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: just days after the president declined to meet with netanyahu in new york, the two leaders spoke over the phone. but then hours later romney, who enjoys a muchier reonith netanyahu got his own call chatting with the israeli leader whi
through the debates, and look once again to the economy as the determining factor in this election. >> you know, jim, we heard from kevin madden, the romney campaign adviser on getting romney ready for this debate tomorrow, here's what he said. >> just trying to get the governor familiar with the head to head one on one format has been a focus because in all the previous debates that we have had, it has been, you know, nine people on stage, trying to -- trying to capture a policy in 90 seconds. the format here is a little different, a little moreting us going back and forth, how the single moderator will be controlling the debate between two candidates. >> so we know, jim, they have been at this for a couple of weeks. mentioned the big news today, i say big being semifacetious, we know romney had chipotle lunch. he's been prepping, prepping and prepping. looking to the next 24 hours, will they really be practicing up until, you know, tomorrow night, 9:00? >> reporter: i think so, brooke. what we're told by the campaign earlier today is that mitt romney will actually do his debate walk thro
of pennsylvania today. >> -- make sure america leads in our homes, in our economy and in our military. i need something from you. that's my commitment to you. i need you to go out and find somebody who voted for barack obama and get him to vote for me. >> he's down but not out. can he turn it around with an october surprise? let's welcome stephanie cutter. it's going reasonably well for you guys. it's been a good couple weeks, really since the conventions. you've got a bit of momentum but i guess you're not taking this too complacently. >> no, absolutely not, piers. you know, debates can be a pivotal moment in campaigns. i remember eight years ago when john kerry was getting ready to debate george bush, we were eight points down. coming out of that first debate we were tied with george bush. so there is an opportunity for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to change the dynamics in this race. we know he's going to show up prepared, disciplined and aggressive, even tim pawlenty said that he's as

that brought the global economy to the brink of collapse, there have been few indictments and not a single criminal conviction of a top banking executive tied to the financial collapse. but the federal government has announced that it's now suing jpmorgan chase and its bear stearns unit for what they call a broad patent of midconduct during the housing boom. that's likely to further offend the managers who once supported the president but are now mortified because he's had the temerity to call them to account. thomas frank is a columnist with harper's magazine and the author of "pity the billionaire." great to have you. are these billionaires as pitiful as they appear. the president passed dodd frank, the stock market is more than doubled since 2008. and yet they hate him because why? >> that's a really good question, martin, but first we should take a step back and establish that they do hate him. not only are they pouring money into mitt romney's campaign, but there's a sort of literary genre out there of like what would you call it, public letters from billionaires denouncing obama. you
